Sustainable Timber Building

Design & Construction

Cabinco is an established company which, for many years, has been creating sustainable timber buildings based around a shell of machine profiled interlocking logs. Learn more about us →

Eco Building

At Cabinco we have experience of constructing a large number of individual sustainable buildings for organisations wishing to erect ‘green’ environmentally sound premises.

We combine our timber buildings with innovative design ideas and modern technology to create sustainable buildings which blend into their environment and will be in place to inspire the next generation.

Wood is a naturally renewable resource which provides a permanent carbon lock when used in construction. These properties of timber, provide an excellent basis for today’s modern eco-buildings.  We are able to offer a complete turnkey solution with an environmental focus.  Zero Carbon or Carbon Positive can be provided.

Sustainable Building Solutions

Each building is individually designed, and all components are machined and cut off-site. Using wither the MPL system or SIPTEK systems.  Both facilitate rapid erection, optimise accuracy, and minimise the use of heavy plant.  Additional benefits include the ability to work in relatively confined areas without having to lift heavy panels etc over existing buildings.

Our construction system requires very little machinery on site and as a result reduces noise and nuisance which can be a part of traditional construction methods.  This “off site construction”  also has a significant impact on reducing CO₂ emissions generated on-site.

Our wooden buildings are designed to meet or exceed all current UK Building Control legislation. We also have an “in house” BREEAM capability, enabling Cabinco to provide expert guidance on compliance. Cabinco timber buildings are all based around a structural MPL shell or SIPTEK panel system which is then further insulated externally, and clad in Siberian Larch or Western Red Cedar although we can incorporate a wide range of alternatives to suit client requirements. Learn more in technical section →
